hey. i'm looking to get a new mobile phone which has a good camera (good enough for printing. probably looking at, at least 2megapixels) and which can record reasonably high resolution video (640x480,30fps).

so far ive only found the following which fit this:

nokia n95
nokia n93
LG ku990

any other suggestions?

also any suggestions for camera phones which can take good photos (but not worrying about video recording) would also be appreciated? such as the sony k800i/k810i

thanks

I've got a Sony Ericsson K800i, and it has great photos and decent video. There's a new one out with a 5MP camera; I don't know if that's the k810i you mentioned.
#3
are the photos on the k800i good enough to print out? how do you reckon they would compare to a budget stand alone digital camera?

because i already have a digital camera (canon a530 powershot), but its a pain to carry around both a phone and a digital camera. thats why im looking at a good quality camera phone

theres that two sided sprint one thats really good with music and video. my friend has it and it can have really long videos and a lot of music.

i have an LG, the one that sorta looks like the krzr. i dont have a memory card so i can take only 15 second videos, but they are good quality. if you get a memory card you can record up to an hour.


theres my 2 cents.

Don't worry about the video. No one watches concert videos taken from cell phones because they are utter crap.
#8
^ i doubt i would record much video at concerts, photos would be better.
video would probably be used for other things, such as for stuff which i may want to upload to youtube, stage6, myspace etc.

just found this on youtube. http://youtube.com/watch?v=ScGfxIr58Kg
its actually not that bad quality considering that they have actually used a fair amount of zoom (which partially explains the amount of shaking).
i wonder what phone it is...

go for the N95

I have it and it takes awesome pictures, 5MP camera, and the video is pretty good anyway!

depends how much you use things like the camera... it chugs battery either way though.

I dont use the camera very often, but i end up charging it every 3 days

using the camera a fair bit though you'll get get a good 2 days.

Are you gonna make private sexy time videos or are you gonna post them on the internet? Yes, this is a very important factor in chosing the correct phone.
#15
yeah thats what i do.

The only problem ive actually had with it is occasionally (about once a month or so) the phone will completely freeze, and to get it to work again you have to just pull the battery out so it actually turns off, but then you can just put it back in an start it up normally again.

i found this clip http://youtube.com/watch?v=PsxCPMpRRK8, and supposably it was filmed entirely on a nokia n93, which is pretty impressive.
the n95 should be around about the same or better quality than this

The K800i has a 3.2MP camera; I've seen standalone cameras with 8.1MP for under £100.

however once you go above 7million pixels or so theres little noticable difference in image quality unless you want to zoom in on areas and still retain a reasonably high definition.

^ thats the k850i isnt it?
yea thats 5mp (good enough for a3), but i don't see why you would want much than that escpecially on a phone. megapixels aren't the only factor in image quality either.
